"I’ve been following talented watercolor artist Jenna Rainey for years, so when I found out her second book was going to be focused on florals, I knew it would be right up my alley. Jenna thoroughly breaks down the watercolor technique into easy-to-absorb sections covering tools, technique, sketching, color palettes and tones, and floral anatomy before moving into various flower specimens broken down by shape.
